Chapel Hill's Charles House has worked in and owned University Florist in the center of town since the 1960s. Today, the business faces the challenges posed by changes on Franklin Street and the migration of businesses and customers to outlying shopping centers. House continues to thrive by providing quality products with the help of his son and a dedicated staff.
